CTMH Pemberley Layout #2

Here is the second layout the Workshop girlies did this month. On this one we used one of the stamps from the Workshop on the Go exclusive stamp set in the cluster of flowers on the bottom right side.  Workshops on the Go (WOTG) are a great buy because you not only get an entire paper pack, but 1-2 embellishment packs and an exclusive stamp set to help you build your stamp collection. Also, you get a full color brochure with cutting and assembly instructions for 2 layouts and cards. check them out here.

CTMH Pemberley WOTG

This month's workshop was made with the Pemberley Workshop on the Go.  All the ladies loved the paper once they saw all the different patterns and beautiful colors.  The large flower print was perfect to take a section and cut it out for an embellishment.  We took the butterfly and flowers, used pop dots to give dimension.  Two little pearls on the antennas and it's all ready for some glitter glue to accent. All we need now is pictures, journaling and title.

CTMH "Artiste" Cricut cartridge

OK, so am I the only one that thinks this little coffin Halloween decoration is too cute for words?  This is one of the many 3D cuts available on CTMH's newest Cricut Cartridge "Artiste" available from my online store beginning on August 1st.
This one was made by one of the instructors at the CTMH Extravaganza we consultants attended at convention last week.  Sorry I don't remember her name so I can give her proper credit.  I love this and plan on making plenty for Halloween.  Check back for more sneak peeks.

CTMH Convention Swap Card

Convention is just 5 days away...Dallas here we come!  While I'm not looking forward to the hot weather, I am looking forward to so many things convention has to offer. One of the most fun is the card swap with fellow consultants. Those who want to make any number of cards and design/s they want then during free time like before general sessions, lunch time etc we trade.  This is a great way to get lots of card ideas and see how creative others are.  All levels of skill can participate, most all consultants will trade with even the most basic beginner.  Last year I think my card fell to the middle of the creative road, which is just fine with me. This year I used the Pemberley Paper Pack X7148B and My Acrylix® Stamp set Beautiful Friendship  B1400. You can't tell but the scalloped circle is raised by 3D foam squares to give dimension. Unfortunately, the camera angle gave a shadow to the bottom of the card, but you get the idea.  Remember I will be posting pictures live from convention next week from Thursday to Saturday.
